8 good reasons to do your work-study placement at Pierre Fabre

June 1, 2016

Join Pierre Fabre Laboratories - France's 2nd private pharmaceutical laboratory and European leader in dermo-cosmetics - means joining a Group which is devoted to professional training. Every year, we welcome fifty students on average, from various training backgrounds: from baccalaureate level to baccalaureate + 5 years of higher education, business and engineering schools, university programs and technological studies. We offer work-study placements in different areas: production, supply chain, IS, management and finance, marketing and sales, HR, etc.

So if you are looking for an internship to supplement your studies, and you want a job with meaning, here are 8 good reasons to join us

1. Take charge of a project

Every year we invest in hosting and training students because we believe that all young people should be immersed in a professional context. As part of our training commitment, we give every intern a genuine professional mission, as part of an apprenticeship or ‘professionalization’ contract. 

2. Benefit from the commitment and passion of our tutors 

The quality of the ‘intern-tutor’ relationship is crucial in a work-study placement contract. This is why, in 2015, we held our first ‘Tutoring Day’, a training day specifically for tutors.
Beyond this training day, our tutors are passionate professionals, who love sharing their enthusiasm and, most of all, their vision of the job.

3. Join a training program  

We are enthusiastic to organize your training and offer you the opportunity to develop your skills by working with renowned experts in their field. We aim to do all we can to make your time within the Group a success.

4. See a different side to company economics 

You will be working for a company owned firstly by a public-interest foundation as the majority shareholder (a unique case in France) and secondly by its employees! The Pierre Fabre Foundation is a public-interest foundation whose key aim is to improve access to quality medication and health care in the least advanced and developing countries.

5. Join the ‘made in France’ movement

We combine international development (with subsidiaries in more than 40 countries across five continents and products sold in over 130 countries) and a regional approach (48 sites in France, including 27 in the Tarn region). We conduct 100% of our research and 90% of our production in France.

6. Respect nature and people

Our company was the first with over 10,000 employees to be AFAQ 26 000-assessed as ‘exemplary’ for its CSR policy (Corporate Social Responsibility).

7. Share in the 'Juniors' conviviality

By joining the Group, you will of course become part of the community of ‘Juniors’. This will allow you to connect and bond with your colleagues quickly.

8. Keep calm and have fun!

Because we realize internships aren't easy, we and our tutors know that enjoyment is also crucial. The result? 84% of our interns and work placement students consider us their preferred employer. In 2015, for the 3rd year running, we were awarded the ‘Happy Trainees’ label.
